Shown here is the “Black Beauty” leather, cushioned body pad with 1-3/4-in. (44 mm) leather D-saddle & waist strap, shown with waist strap & scaffolding D-ring.
Full-floating belts allow for lateral movement of the D-saddle with D-rings during use. As a lineman changes position on a pole, the D-rings easily adjust to the movement. As a result, the pole strap rubs against the pole less frequently and receives less wear. Any load or pull does not bind tools to the tool loops.
